    Answer:

    4) three

    Explanation:

    Assuming you mean 1.365248×10⁷, 2% of that is:

    0.02 (1.365248×10⁷) = 0.027305×10⁷

    So the number is:

    1.365248×10⁷ ± 0.027305×10⁷

    We need to round this number so that there is uncertainty only in the last digit.

    1.37×10⁷ ± 0.03×10⁷

    There are three significant figures in 1.37.
